What makes Children Smile?
Research has revealed it’s still the simple pleasures in life that make our children smile. Pulling silly faces (44%), reading stories (28%) and playing hide and seek (27%) remain the best and simplest ways of putting a smile on a child’s face, said the survey of 1,000 parents and children.
According to Wrigley Extra, children smile up to 400 times a day! Wow, that is a lot – even though that is surprising to hear, when you think about it does seem right. E and J are always smiling and it is the simple things that make them smile the most.
The research commissioned by Wrigley’s Extra®, spoke to children and their parents about what makes them smile to mark the launch of its own storybook, The Lost Smile.
E absolutely loves stories, she likes a good bedtime story and she also enjoys reading some books herself. So when we were offered the chance to receive a new book, The Lost Smile, as part of the new Wrigley’s Extra Smile Back Project, I was interested to know more about the project and see what the book was all about.
‘The Lost Smile Is a beautiful children’s book about a little boy named ‘Kyle’ who goes on the hunt for his families missing smiles. Kyle uses tools to help him find his families smiles, such as a magnifying glass and a toothbrush!
It’s a nicely illustrated book which gave E and I plenty to talk about, the illustrations added to the enjoyment of the book.
The story is easy to read and E manages to read some of the words herself but she really enjoys the story being read to her before bedtime and it really does make her smile.
The lost Smile is available for purchase at £4.99 and funds raise will go towards supporting the work of Action for Children and the Oral Health Foundation. You can find out more about the Smile Back Project and the book on the Wrigley Smile Back website
